I think JIT did not work in 2004-11-11, but
I was able to build a more-or-less working JIT in February this
year (seems that it was 2005-02-18), after applying a small patch:


However, it was not stable enough for me so I gave up (most notably it
crashes always when I try to access serial port using rxtx). But, if
you are lucky it could work for your application.

That patch is now in cvs, but due to these new problems I have not been
able to create a working Kaffe for XScale since.
